There once was a boy named Nick,
Who loved to make up a limerick,
And every day,
Another one he would say,
Till one day he just got so sick!November 1, 2010 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm #1221221oomisParticipant
I don’t think this thread will be boring.
In fact, it’s a thread I’m adoring.
Sometimes it’s quite funny
At other times, pun-ny.
while reading it, I’m never snoring…November 2, 2010 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #1221222
Oomis, with you i definitely agree,
This thread also fills me with glee,
This poetry tends to,
Make me laugh a few,
Cuz some of them are just downright funny!November 2, 2010 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #1221223
The date today is November two,
And i’m just totally blue,
Which party should I pick,
Demo or Republic,
I just don’t know what to do!November 3, 2010 5:35 am at 5:35 am #1221224
Food, not wine, is my weak spot
Has me tied in a knot
I want good health
But then in stealth
I eat the extras in the potNovember 3, 2010 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #1221225
This news is going to sound sour,
But this thread is losing its power,
For quite some time,
Its as silent as a mime,
Please can you post here within the hour?November 3, 2010 11:38 pm at 11:38 pm #1221226oomisParticipant
My goodness, you must give us credit
We’re all busy now – there, I’ve said it!
You’ll just have to wait
For tomorrow’s date
By noon, I am sure you’ll have read it.November 4, 2010 11:19 am at 11:19 am #1221227
This is a true story.
A manic girl I met today
To minyan she came to pray
Her ceaseless talking
Kept the rest of us walking
Rachmonas flew away.
She’d been out walking half the night
The places she’d been gave us fright
Said that she had just been
An inpatient on the mental scene
Its very sad – she’s very bright.
We tried to befriend her – it wasn’t easy
Her rambling tales made us queasy
She could daven and could sing
Her voice had an angelic ring
Yet her presence made us all uneasy.November 4, 2010 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #1221228
A bee came near me yesterday
I prayed that it would fly away
I stood very still
It took all of my will
I will not go out to play today.November 4, 2010 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #1221229
Minyan a bee came near you?
Why that happened to me too!
Unfortunately for me,
I was very edgy,
And now Im all black and blue!November 5, 2010 10:03 am at 10:03 am #1221230
It appears that those who are minglers
In this CR thread by we jinglers
Have lost interest it seems
Left us to our dreams
Just tapping keyboards with our fingers.
Shabbat Shalom again my pals
This message is strictly Minyan Gal’s
The soup its a-simmering
The candles are glimmering
All’s well in my home – there’s no “mals”.November 5, 2010 10:46 am at 10:46 am #1221231
I love the quiet of the night
Everything seems so right
I can get work done
With no interruption
And through the day sleep tightNovember 5, 2010 3:48 pm at 3:48 pm #1221232
At this time Hashem made an Os,
We bless it over our wine in our Cos,
All our worries are dropped,
And melacha is stopped,
Enjoy this Shabbos Parshas Toldos!November 5, 2010 3:50 pm at 3:50 pm #1221233
well done blinky !November 5, 2010 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #1221234
Thank you:)November 5, 2010 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #1221235
Great work Blinky.November 8, 2010 3:54 am at 3:54 am #1221236
Was it time for you to go?
My fingers and keyboard say no
I quickly searched around
And under entertainment found
My dear limerick, lonely soNovember 8, 2010 11:37 am at 11:37 am #1221237
Thank you, thank you vnishmart
You are terribly smart
The thread you located
My mind was elated
A good feeling is in my heart.November 8, 2010 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #1221238
Rosh Chodesh Kislev is todays date,
In this month we do celebrate,
The miracle of Chanukah,
With dreidels and a Menorah,
And parties that are really great!November 8, 2010 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #1221239
More about Chanukah
Donuts and latkes we’ll eat
It really will be quite a treat
All things that are greasy
They slide down real easy
Not gaining weight will be a feat.
Candles we will light daily
Children will sing very gayly
Dreydls we’ll spin
Nes, gimmel, hey, shin
It will all be very freilich.November 9, 2010 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #1221240
Chanukah is almost here,
There is so much to prepare,
Donuts with jelly,
That are bad for your belly,
I think ill diet next year!
P.s- minyan gal you meant nun gimmel…not nes, also freilich doesnt rhyme with daily, but its fine i enjoyed reading it anyway:)November 9, 2010 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #1221241
Well, if leniency we get
I’ll chime in yet
Not worrying about rhythm or rhyme
Just getting it out in time
This limerick is the quickest I’ve ever done 🙂November 9, 2010 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #1221242
Limerick friends are fun indeed
We’re there for each other in time of need
Meeting in this room again and again
A virtual reality it’s better then
To continue planting the friendship seedNovember 9, 2010 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #1221243
vnishmartem- im being mean today…but your 2nd and 3rd lines are too long to be considered a limerick:) But its a very nice poem!November 9, 2010 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #1221244msseekerMember

I see we are really here for each other….LOLNovember 9, 2010 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1221246
Blinky – I feel like an idiot. I think I had brain freeze – that was twice yesterday. Or else I was thinking about the earlier line about the candles – using nes instead of nun. I couldn’t think of anything else to rhyme with daily and gayly. I did consider using “freily(ch).November 10, 2010 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm #1221247
dont worry minyan i was in the mood yesterday to bash the limericists! (i did it to venishmartem too:)
In autumn the heavy winds makes sound,
And the leaves are swaying around,
It is quite strange
How their colors do change,
And then they fall merrily to the ground!November 11, 2010 11:51 am at 11:51 am #1221248
Today’s the day we do recall
Our brave heroes who for us did fall
Through bullets’ strafe
They kept us safe
Please honor them with Yiskadol.November 12, 2010 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #1221249
Ok my weekly limerick….
Yaakov avinu was running for his life,
He decided to seek for himself a wife,
He had to work a lot,
But two gems he got,
Whom between them was no strife!
Good Shabbos!!!!!November 14, 2010 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1221250
My Baba’s yahrzeit starts tonight
I loved that woman – she had might
Her children are gone
And life moves on
I’ll go to shul her name to recite.November 14, 2010 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #1221251

Shawn- no offense but this is a limeric thread…(see the rules in the begining of the thread:)
Minyan- very nice limerick- sounds like a very special woman.
Oomis 1105 did state,
That at last weeks date,
Was her birthday
So I hope its Ok
That you will accept birthday wishes late!November 16, 2010 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #1221255
Oh, Oomis my dear
I really do fear
That I missed your birth date
So this message is late
Have a happy and healthy year.November 19, 2010 1:37 am at 1:37 am #1221256
This thread was getting lost again
It took me awhile to find its name
I brought it back
I’m just a hack
So for this rhyme I take no blame.
Its very cold outside today
So indoors I did stay
Homemade soup in the pot
It was served piping hot
And chased my chilly blues away.November 19, 2010 12:41 pm at 12:41 pm #1221257
Greetings from my snow-covered home
Looking outside you’d think this was Nome
Though the winds they do bluster
This message I can muster
Warmest wishes from me for a Shabbat Shalom.
The winds they did howl all through the night
The noise woke me up – gave me quite a fright
Early morning and I’m wide awake
At my ‘puter this ditty to make
Thinking of friends whom I don’t know by sight.November 19, 2010 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm #1221258
Minyan you truly are the best,
You revive this thread with a zest,
And every Friday,
A good Shabbos you say,
Im waiting to hear from you the rest!November 19, 2010 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #1221259
Ok now my weekly limerick (im curious if anyone reads them…I just really enjoy making them up!)
What a loaded story written in Tanach,
Yaakov and Esav and the fight with the Malach,
Though he got a big bruise,
Yaakov did not lose,
And his name got changed in this Parshas Vayishlach!
Good shabbos everybody!!!!!!!!November 19, 2010 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #1221260
Lol minyan- I love the last post with the snow.
And just a quick correction- you wrote:
Please honor them with Yiskadol.
Kaddish starts with YisGadol. Not Yiskadol.
It’s very important to say every word correctly.November 19, 2010 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #1221261
thank you smartcookie
that is a very common and important mistake
also in Shmenoh Esrei be very careful to say ba-al gevuros NOT bal gevuros
ba-al means master of
bal means without, highly apikorticNovember 19, 2010 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #1221262
smartcookie and moderator- those are very important to know, maybe someone should start a thread on such a topicNovember 19, 2010 4:18 pm at 4:18 pm #1221263WolfishMusingsParticipant
My personal pet peeve: People who say the name Rivka with an “f.” I’ve heard ba’alei kriah do this. :: shudder ::
The WolfNovember 19, 2010 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #1221264
There are hundreds of such common mistakes all throughout davening which people don’t realize.
Especially Krias Shema/Kaddish, and the real very Heilige Tefillos. Each word should be pronounced clearly and individually.November 19, 2010 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #1221265
yes but some are more common, some are more crucial
the two pointed out here are bothNovember 19, 2010 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #1221266HelpfulMember
I think Rifka with the f is an anglicized rendition.November 19, 2010 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm #1221267not IMember
Yes I hear what you are saying.. As a kid I spelled it with a ‘pay’ til my teacher made me never to forget. Always remember that the English version is “rebecca’ so it mast have a v!November 19, 2010 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm #1221268
Tefillah is so very holy,
So make sure to say each word slowly,
Say every letter right,
Even when time’s tight,
And please help me out with this last line here…..November 19, 2010 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #1221269WolfishMusingsParticipant
I think Rifka with the f is an anglicized rendition.
No, Rifka is the “lazy” version since both the /f/ and /v/ sounds are fricatives. The /f/ however is unvoiced whereas the /v/ is voiced. People sometimes take the “shortcut” and don’t voice the consonant.
